Field Roast Holiday Shopping List
Why am I writing a blog about Thanksgiving and Christmas when school hasn’t even started yet? Here at Field Roast, despite being late summer, we’ve been working hard to make this year’s holiday season a success. Cooking for a large family can be overwhelming, cooking for tens of thousands of families….well that just takes a lot of people and planning!
Our grocery list is HUGE. The holiday shopping list includes such tasty things like buttery vegan puff pastry, tangy cranberries, fragrant curry powder, and delicious candied ginger to make a whole bunch of Hazelnut Cranberry Roasts En Croute. Storage in the warehouse and ingredients on hand are all increased. As the holiday approaches, we still need to maintain our current orders for sausages, deli slices and our new frankfurters. The mixing bowls and steam ovens will be working at full capacity.
Not only are we busy, but the buyers in the grocery stores that you buy our products from are busy placing orders as well. Jennifer and Staci have been hard at work calling grocery stores around the country to make sure they place orders for the Celebration Roasts and Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute. The buyers all seem eager and excited to carry our vegetarian holiday roasts once again.
Mid-September is the when the real bustle begins. Fresh holiday specific produce and ingredients begin to pour into the warehouse and will be quickly fashioned into holiday roasts, packaged, frozen and put on semi-trailers to be shipped across the nation so that all of us can eat together and celebrate the holidays. I know in my family food is one of the main traditions that we partake in around the holidays, and we here at Field Roast hope that we can become part of your holiday tradition.
